Paper Abstract

Photon counting MCP image intensifier (PCIT) of both converting and proximity focusing type have been designed for adaptive optics applications. The principal performances considered in this paper are as follows: quantum detection efficiency, brightness gain and photon ratin, maximum output brightness, dark counting rate, and pulse height distribution. In the design of the PCIT, five schemes have been analyzed and compared to each other. The design results of parameters mentioned above are also given.
